United States of America – New York II

Statue of Atlas holding the world on his shoulders in front of Rockefeller Centre in New York City. Interestingly, when the statue was unveiled in 1937, some people protested, claiming that it looked like Italian dictator, Benito Mussolini. – Having seen photos of Mussolini, I would have said it looks more like what Mussolini imagined he looked like in his dreams!

Lovely assortment of stamps, the first two from a series honouring American craftsmanship, the centre one commemorating celebrated American poet, E. E. Cummings, and the last in honour of this year's Year of the Dragon Chinese New Year.

Special thanks to Susan for putting such effort into this lovely card! :-)
